    Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Medicine

    Andrew R. Hoffman, MD, is professor and senior vice chair for academic affairs in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine in California and is the chief of endocrinology at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. His laboratory research focuses on examining epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression and studying the role of insulin-like growth factors (IGF) and growth hormone in normal physiology and in cancer development. His studies have implications for the therapeutic use of growth hormone and IGF in development and in the clinical consequences of aging. Dr Hoffman is involved in clinical projects studying the natural history of bone health in elderly men, the role of testosterone replacement in middle-aged men, and neuroendocrine function in aging.
